AT THE MUSEUM: INCREDIBLE NAVAJO-INFLUENCED ART OF ERIC-PAUL RIEGE!

We’re blown away by the artwork of Navajo artist Eric-Paul Riege. His current show at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles is otherworldly. It’s an art installation and collection of sculptures he calls “totems of memory.”

Directly influenced by his native Navajo culture, the work is inspired by the Navajo philosophy of hózhó, an aesthetic worldview and practice that imbues everyday life. The sculptural objects are made of yarn, hair, natural and synthetic fibers and recycled from previous artworks.

Photos don’t do this work justice. If you’re in L.A., go see these for yourself at the Hammer. The show runs through February 19, 2023.
